Shaheen Afridi and Marnus Labuschagne opened up after the #PakvsAus series and so, here is a look at what they had to say.
Shaheen Afridi And Marnus Labuschagne Explain Their Experience After The #PakvsAus Series
Shaheen Afridi while sharing his experience following the recently concluded #PakvsAus series said, “This series has brought players from either side closer than ever. We visited Australia in 2019 and also met their players during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, but almost six weeks together has helped bridge the gap. There were tough moments on the field of play, but off the field, everything was easy, relaxed, and friendly.
“The incident with David Warner turned out to be an amusing one. It was the last ball of the day and I came very close to David on my follow-through. David has a good sense of humour, so he also stayed there and it made a great shot for the photographers. It was a light-hearted incident and it stayed that way, but both David and I enjoyed the social media reaction in the days that followed.”
Australian’s premier batsman Labuschagne on the other hand said, “It’s been really an eye-opening experience as well, to what Pakistan’s like, obviously when you haven’t been to a country, there’s a lot of speculation. You obviously paint a picture in your mind but, the country itself has far exceeded my expectations in terms of the picture and what the people are about. Cricket on the field has been really hard and competitive. But there’s been such great times and I’ve had a really good time with Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Rizwan, even Abdullah Shafique and Imam-Ul-Haq when they’re batting.
“It’s been really exciting and enjoyable that you can play a series where it’s competitive, but also friendly. Off the field, you can have a laugh about things that have happened and stuff like that.”
